Manila Bay, bay of the South China Sea extending into southwestern Luzon Island, Philippines. Almost completely landlocked, it is considered one of the world’s great harbours and has an area of 770 sq mi (2,000 sq km) with a 120-mi (190-km) circumference. Its widest diameter, from northwest to southeast, measures 36 mi. Corregidor Island, 30 mi west of Manila, divides the bay’s 11-mi-wide entrance into two channels—the seldom used South Channel and the safer, 2-mi-wide North Channel between Bataan Peninsula and Corregidor.

Rizal Park will get a facelift

 The nearly 200-year-old Rizal Park will get a facelift next year with energy-saving lamps and closed circuit TV cameras among its new fixtures.
Budget Secretary Butch Abad made the announcement as the country celebrated Rizal Day.
Abad said the government has allocated P150 million for the project. The fund will be used to replace over 700 lamp posts with solar-power LED lights.
Twenty-five security cameras will also be installed.
The National Parks Development Committee (NPDC) earlier said it looks to complete Luneta Park's facelift ahead of its 2016 deadline.
